i personally would get a tsp 347 long block for 6k that comes with any tsp cam and stage 2.5 5.3l heads. Not to wild but keeping in mind a good dd.

Of course, I would have to say S/C. I went that way and the torque down low is just
crazy. Keeps pulling past redline. It's just a whole different level of fun on the street.
The S/C whine by itself gets people to turn their heads to see what's coming.
It's the most fun I've ever had in a street car. That includes the '67 Camaro with over 650HP and a two speed... trans brake and all.
There is just something about having a Z06 killer.
Now then, there is a '08 Z06 S/C I'm looking at with over 700HP.
That would be the ZR1 Distroyer. I'm having to keep my hands in
my pockets right now. I really want that car !!!
I really don't see the need though. By the time you hit second your gone anyways.
Traction is the key when you start hitting these power levels.
If I didn't have to worry about smog I would have gone N/A... Unfortunately, this is the most power I can use
legally on the street.

A zr1 with bolt ons has made 740whp and 720wtrq. It also made 550wtrq at 2500rpms

I hear ya... you can always make it faster but stock they are only rated at about 638 at the crank. - 15% = 54 or 638-54= 584rwhp compared to the 700rwhp car that I'm talking about for less than a third the price. It's a great deal !!! But, it will never be a ZR1.
Imo if someone modded a ZR1 it wouldn't be worth as much.
Anyways, I'll just have to be happy with what I have for a while. I need to put more money into real estate I think.... at least for now.
